When playing sport, whether it be professionally or socially, there is always the risk of accidents, especially slips, trips and falls.
There may seem to be a smaller chance of injury in cricket compared to other sports, but accidents at work are never ones that we plan for in advance. It is essential to take necessary precautions since injuries such as the ones stated below can always be a possibility.
Here is a list of the potential incidents which you could face whilst playing cricket:
- Being hit with force by the cricket ball from a throw or via the bat.
- A cricket bat hitting you from a batsman’s swing.
- Slipping on the crease whilst bowling.
- Suffering strains to the muscles and ligaments from unexpected overexertion.
- Stray balls in the outfield causing damaged fingers or head injuries.
